Since March 13, over 26,000 local students have been served by Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast. How? Our team pivoted quickly to switch to 100% digital virtual classroom education. Over fifty age-appropriate virtual lessons and activities were made available for our local teachers to incorporate into their lesson plans. This included a Virtual Career Fair Series, which was only made possible because people like you answered our call for help and shared your story!
The community has shown that together we can make a difference - thank you!
As we prepare for the new school year, we are aiming to provide almost all of our programs virtually. Additionally, we are increasing our annual impact goal from 25,500 to 40,000 students!
We are asking you to help us reach our goal to provide access to Junior Achievement programs to thousands of more students in summer and fall. Any level of support you can give is greatly appreciated.
• Donations of $25 will help to bring Junior Achievement programs to one student.
• $50 will support two students.
• $100 will help sponsor four students.
Our goal of $10,000 in donations = approximately 450 students who will benefit from our programs.
Thank you for helping to inspire and prepare our young people to succeed!
